The latest single from acoustic guitar-toting Alex The Astronaut, ’Not Worth Hiding’ is a sweet female vocal-led tune that works to quell the political nature surrounding the sexuality of those not deemed ’straight’, from someone personally suffering from stigma. ’Not Worth Hiding’ is perfect for any pro-equality projects or coming of age stories.
